Book description
The Caxton Club of Chicago and Oak Knoll Press have really done it. Waiting for me this evening is a just released copy of this much anticipated book: Other People's Books: Association Copies and the Stories They Tell. An edition of only 1000 copies, I cannot imagine it will not be available long. The quarter-leather volume is richly illustrated with full color throughout of books and inscriptions. This is a book developed by bibliophiles for their own kind. Here is the club's description of this fine volume:
"The 66th volume in our distinctive series for booklovers. Other People's Books features fascinating stories of associations told in essays by 51 authors and a scholarly introduction by G. Thomas Tanselle. This hardbound, 224-page book was printed in four-colors in Italy in an edition of 1000 with 112 images."
My hearty congratulations to the Caxton Club and to Oak Knoll for bringing this beautiful book to print and a big Thank You for allowing even the furthest flung collectors an opportunity for a copy. A .pdf preview and Table of Contents are available to whet your appetite at Oak Knoll's site.
